Let’s Talk About Philip (Helen Wood And Something For The Weekend)

By | Published on Monday 15 August 2022

Helen thought she knew everything there was to know about how her brother died, but after more than twenty years of silence she is compelled to start asking questions. This two-person play depicts the very real story of how Helen learnt a little more about who her brother was at the age of 27, and how she finally began to grieve. Written by and starring Helen Wood and Gregor Hunt, the performance is soft, funny and ultimately honest while portraying what happens when someone loses their life by suicide and the effect it can have on their family and the wider community. Despite being a show about grief, it is a very peaceful and life affirming way to spend an hour.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 28 Aug.
